“Spirited coming of age novel romps from strength to strength…I’m a Moran fan.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This is one of those books that caused a huge hype when it was released, but also one of those I wasn’t sure I fancied or not. In the end I saw it a few weeks ago in the charity shop and picked it up.
I‘ve been in a bit of a reading rut and finding it hard to get into anything but I have to say this was the perfect book to read myself out of a rut with.
As soon as I started reading I realised that Johanna Morrigan, the central character is the same age as me and I found myself laughing at her ‘life in the 90s through the eyes of a teenager’ wisdom. Johanna lives in a council house with her crazy dysfunctional family and this coming of age book is laugh out loud funny!
